Due to the Coronavirus, the new deadline to file and pay your 2019 Federal tax returns is July 15, 2020. There will be no penalties or interest accrued during this time on payments owed. This date of July 15, 2020 also applies to the 1st quarter 2020 Federal tax estimated payment.
Louisiana has followed suit, the state tax filing date and date to make state payments owed for the 2019 tax year is now July 15, 2020.
Since the filing deadline has been pushed back for your 2019 taxes, that means the deadline to contribute to your Traditional and ROTH IRAs for 2019 are also now due on July 15, 2020.
This is great news for taxpayers! However, if you think you are due a refund, you are still encouraged to file by April 15, 2020, as they are still processing returns and refunds.
